Biography

Hugo Rodallega became Fulham’s third signing of the summer in 2012 when he joined on a free transfer in July after his contract with Wigan Athletic expired.

The striker began his professional career in his native Colombia with Deportes Quindío where he averaged almost a goal every other game. His form saw him move briefly to Deportivo Cali where he was also a regular scorer, before he switched across the border to Monterrey in Mexico.

His time at Monterrey also saw him take in a loan spell at Atlas, before he joined Club Necaxa in 2007 where he once again came close to averaging a goal every two matches. His goalscoring exploits caught the attention of then Wigan manager Steve Bruce who brought him to Lancashire for a fee believed to be in the region of £4.5m.

In his first full season at the club, the hitman was Wigan’s top scorer. He also has over 40 caps for Colombia to his name, and has netted eight times for his country.

After making the move to SW6, Rodallega impressed with his work-rate and running of the channels, and his three goals against Wigan, Newcastle United and West Ham United were all extremely valuable come the end of the campaign.

The 2013/14 season proved to be a difficult campaign for the striker, but his winning goals against Aston Villa and Norwich City in April prompted hope that the Whites could avoid the drop - something that ultimately proved out of reach.
